Actress Aja Naomi King has been in Hollywood for more than a decade - getting roles here and there. But she's about to be a breakout star now.
In 2014, King had a recurring role in the ABC drama series Black Box and was later cast as one of the leads in the Shonda Rhimes' legal thriller, How to Get Away with Murder.
She was also cast in Birth Of A Nation last year and is starring in Kevin Hart's new movie Untouchable, later this year.
Essence Magazine honored her yesterday at a dinner ceremony.
